100 Years After Ludlow

Marking the 100th anniversary this month of the infamous anti-labor "Ludlow Massacre," where 20 died, including 11 or more chileren.  Woody Guthrie, of course, sang about it.

A pet peeve really. I followed your link to The Nation article by Thai Jones, but I did not find any mention of who was the president and Commander in Chief at the time of the massacre.

Seems to me this it is a disservice to readers to omit such information, as it provides historical context. In contrast, you thoughtfully note the hand that Roosevelt played in undermining Sinclair and helping to elect his Republican opponent, who subsequently shot up some labor strikers in San Francisco.
